Articles for Dreamers

Here are a collection of articles written by many of our IASD members.

  • Brain Awareness Week (March 12-18, 2018) is coordinated with Gloria Sturzenacker and Susanne Van Doorn
  • The Articles for Dreamers project is overseen by Clare Johnson.

Among IASD’s membership are some of the leading researchers on dreaming and the brain – and IASD is a partner in Brain Awareness Week 2018 (March 12–18), a worldwide effort by the Dana Foundation. Each day during BAW, IASD is posting one to two articles, written for lay audiences, in the Articles for Dreamers section of the website. Each article also contains a link to the IASD BAW handout on the basics of dream science. Starting on March 12, 2018 Hyperlinks to articles will go live on specific days throughout the BAW week at approximately 9:00 A.M.  and / or 5:00 P.M. Eastern Daylight Time. Each article also has a .pdf download to your personal computer available.
